face a government shut down. i think there will be a little bit of chicken game playing at the end of the year. and what most people in washington think will likely happen is they'll negotiate some way to say, here's a broad framework for what both sides want, let's work it out next year. we'll see. >> sheila, i kind of think americans are a little dilutional they are about the economic future and i'm glad they are. i'm glad everybody is feeling a little better, we all are. what has to happen so the financial system supports this. so from a year from now we're not talking about the big, evil, greedy banks and some sense that banks are actually helping america move forward? >> ironically, i think the interest rate policies that are pursuing does dampen the incentives to lend. regional banks that make their money by lending money and the return they can get by lending in an uncertain economy is still quite low. the larger institutions, it's not such a bad deal. they can take their cheap money and reinvest it overseas and they don't have to lend to make money. so, i don't think the ze
negotiate it now and these few remaining weeks before christmas, or we have see the government shut down. i think there will be a little chicken game playing at the end of the year. what most people in washington likely think will happen is they'll negotiate some way to say here's a broad framework for what both sides want. let's work it out next year. >> sheila behr, i think americans are excited about the future. i'm glad people are feeling a little bit better about it, we all are. what has to happen so that a year if now we're not talking about the 9% versus the 1% and that there is some sense that banks are finally helping america move forward. >> it is your influence policies that jam the lens. the person they can get by lending into a still uncertain economy has. they can take their cheap money, reinvest it overseas, so i don't think the zero interest rate policies, i know they're designed to be doing just the opposite. also, congress needs to get its act together with the president and this administration. there needs to be, certainlily with the real economy, it was the game plan on
is not under the power of the government, of the administration. they have their own laws and that's what they follow. and we have no interference in that. and the government has paved the way for the highest form of freedom for all people, and you see that comfortably people criticize, people sometimes trespass the border lines of proper protest and they insult one another. as a president, i'm in the middle of the people of iran without drawing any borders, without drawing any red lines, and we converse. >> right. but this isn't just any protester. this could be your daughter in the future. it is the daughter of your predecessor, the president. a fairly significant moment that she has been imprisoned. do you feel uncomfortable that this lady is in jail? >> translator: you see, let's separate the two arguments, the two topics. the fact that whether i'm happy at anyone going to prison, no, never. never. no one should go to prison. but also keep in mind that in any country, everyone must be treated equally under the laws. no one must have or must receive special treatment because of having
need host government. the libyan government in this case, support to allow u.s. military boots on the ground to provide sort of the defensive security perimeter around the benghazi compound. now, i spoke to a senior administration official who said they have been having regular meetings twice daily, secure video teleconferences on updates of the investigation. there has been regular deputies committee meetings hosted by dennis mcdonough, the deputy national security advisor and discussions regarding libyan support and cooperation, my law enforcement source was quite clear, it's not that the libyans haven't been cooperative. there have been discussions that the libyans were concerned that they themselves couldn't provide the sort of comprehensive security to protect the fbi team and that there were concerns on the libyan part about having a u.s. military presence on the ground. all of that said, anderson, as you point out, 18 days later after the attack, the fbi today sort of indicated to me through a senior law enforcement official they're having serious debates as to whether o
or not the libyan government could have delivered on that promise, we'll never know. what we do know is that no fbi agents are in benghazi, according to our reporting, the crime scene remains unprotected and the official line seems to be everything is going fine with the libyan government and the fbi investigation. as we said, new details tonight. national security analyst fran townsend got some of them. so did cnn contributor bob baer. fran, of course, is the former white house homeland security advisor, a current member of the cnn's external advisory board. she recently traveled to libya with her employer, mcandrew and forbes. bob is a former cia officer with deep experience in the middle east and the arab world. also on the phone from tripoli, cnn cnn's jomana karachi. i'm a little surprised, fran, how they can say -- how they are painting what's happening on the ground in libya, especially based on what you're hearing from sources. >> look, anderson, we have not -- this is not the first international terrorism investigation regrettably going back to the east africa embassy bombings in the late
of government dependence. >> i don't think we can get very far with heed lookers who write-off half the nation as a bunch of victims who never take responsibility for their own lives. >> 47% people of the people -- >> the obama campaign turned romney's remarks into a devastating new ad playing the words under the faces of families and veterans. >> and they will vote for this president no matter what. so my job is not worry about those people. they should take personal responsibility. >> reporter: romney who has courted veterans two days in a row. he's seizing on new economic data. from 1.7% to 1.3. >> this is not just one quarter. this has been going on now for years. china is growing much faster than we, russia is growing faster than we. our economy needs to be reinvigorated. >> reporter: the labor department announced it undercounted nearly 400,000 jobs in 2011. meaning that 4.4 million jobs have been created since inauguration. but the president said there's still more work to do. >> we're not where we need to be. not yet. we've got a lot more folks who have to get back to work. we've got a
-- no one thinks israel is about to drop a bomb on tehran. so, the difference is this is a government with a record of supporting terror and look, no one talks about this very much, but if they had a nuclear weapon, they would be too dangerous. even if you believe they would never use it. if you believe they are sane and rational and their country, their civilization would be destroyed if they dropped a bomb on someone because everyone would know it and the retaliation would be incomprehensible. even if you believe that, too bad things will happen. a lot of their neighbors will get bombs. the more of these weapons you have hanging around, the more material you have, the more it will be stolen or sold or transferred to terrorists. that brings me to the second point, which is that iran has all these extensive contacts with terrorist groups and even if the government didn't sanction it, it wouldn't be that much trouble to get girl scout cookies worth of material -- it's enough to take out 20% to 25% of washington, d.c. just that little bit. so, the prospect of spreading, in a way, dirty
stage aing daring attack on the government's joint chiefs of staff building. that is in damascus. they set off two explosions and then they opened fire. government forces fought back in what is being described now as a raging gun battle. syrian army officials say they have killed all the attackers. the building now secure. state tv reports four military guards were killed in that attack. more than a dozen people injured. >>> syrian government is calling the rebels terrorists, promises to fight them until the very end. over the past two days itn's bill nealy has been embedded with syrian forces battling rebels in damascus in allepo, three syrian cities that are now battle grounds. >> reporter: in one city this would be bad enough. in three this is a disaster. this is now the reality of three main cities in syria. the troops fighting rebels for control of whole districts. aleppo is syria's biggest city, a business capital. engulfed now in the business of war. it's now being destroyed to make it safe. syrian troops are on the offensive in the country's third city, homs. recapturing
not happened and if instead of the occupation of palestine and imposition of a safe government, displacement and genocide of millions of people around the globe, the truth behind these wars had been revealed based on justice. had saddam hussein not invaded iran and had the big power supported the rights of iranian people instead of siding with saddam, if the tragic incidents of september 11th and the millions that were killed and homeless not happened and instead of killing and throwing the culprit into the sea without trial or without informing the world and the people of america an independent fact finding team had been formed to make the general public aware of the truth behind the incident and to prepare to bring him to justice their perpetrators, had extremism or terrorism not been used to secure political goals, had the arms been turned into pens and military expenditures been used to promote well-being among nations, had the drum of ethnic religious orational conflicts not been beaten and if differences had not been used for the purpose of advancing political agendas, had the right to
certainly did, we'll talk about that shortly on the big headline getter. >> does the government have responsible to provide health care to the 50 million americans who don't have care today? >> we do provide care. if someone has a heart attack, they don't sit in their apartment and die, we pick them up in an ambulance and take them to the hospital and give them care, and different states have different ways of providing for that care. >> that's the most expensive way to do it. in the emergency room. >> again, different states have different ways of doing that. some provide that care through clinics, some provide the care through emergency rooms. in my state we found a solution that worked for my state. i wouldn't take what we did in massachusetts and say to texas, you have to take the massachusetts model. >> he points to the massachusetts model, that's what he's trying to eliminate by providing universal coverage. it was mitt romney's rational for his own plan back in 2010. here he is back then on msnbc's "morning joe." >> do you believe in universal coverage? >> oh, sure. look, it d
because of what some are calling a gaffe. mr. romney's big heading on health care. >> does the government have a responsibility to provide health care to the 50 million americans who don't have it today? >> well, we do provide care for people who don't have insurance, people -- if someone has a heart attack, they don't sit in their apartment and die. we pick them up in an ambulance and take them to the hospital and give them care, and different states have different ways of providing for that care. >> that's the most expensive way to do it. the emergency room. >> again, different states have different ways of doing that. some provide that care through clinics. some provide the care through emergency rooms. in my state, we found a solution that worked for my state, but i wouldn't take what we did in massachusetts and say to texas, you've got to take the massachusetts model. >> so he points to the emergency room as a viable alternative for the uninsured, yet that's precisely the expensive alternative that his massachusetts model and the president's model try to eliminate by providing univer
for the assistance we received from the libyan government, and from the libyan people. there should be no doubt that we will be relentless in tracking down the killers and bringing them to justice. >> relentless in tracking down the killers, and bringing them to justice. it's a promise. but does that promise add up? it has been 14 days since the american ambassador to libya and three other americans were killed. and we still don't know why, and we still don't know who did it. and what we do know, from our reporting here at cnn, is this. in terms of a warning, three days before stevens was killed, the libyan military told senior u.s. embassy officials it couldn't control local militias. the libyans advised the americans to decrease their presence in benghazi. and the libyans say the u.s. embassy officials did not ask for more security at that meeting. and as cnn has reported, sources familiar with chris stevens' thinking say he was worried about the security threats in benghazi and in libya. and he was concerned that he could be a target. in terms of whether the attacks were preplanned, libyan o
's presence. they think tice was being detained in august but the government has not acknowledged it. happening in frib, gunmen opened fire on a university in northeastern nigeria. 20 people are now dead. no one has claimed responsibility for the attack but it happened in an area that's been a targeted by islamic militants. we are deeply sorry for what happened. that is the response from ikea. the swedish retail giant came under criticism for intentionally removing photos of women in catalogs that were shipped to saudi arabia. the company is investigating why these photos were omitted in the first place. saudi arabia does not prohibit the presence of women in marketing materials. and hong kong, 38 people are dead in the territory's deadliest maritime accident in decades. a passenger ferry collided with another boat last night off of lamma. police have arrested seven screw members from the boats and rescue crews are still looking for survivors. >> reporter: a night of celebration turned to tragedy as water rushed in through the boat's hull. >> translator: the boat was standing straigh
were killed in syria today. we're talking about today during attacks between the government troops and rebel fighters. >> most of those people died here fighting in the city of aleppo. you see those images there. it is the same day that secretary of state hillary clinton is there. they're dedicate to ending the syrian civil war and helping the people whose lives have been ruined. earlier this week more than 340 people were killed in a single day of fighting in syria. now, government forces are also reportedly shelling parts of damascus and holmes as well. well, u.s. intelligence is now showing us that syria has moved chemical weapons for security reasons. defense secretary leon panetta characterized it as limited movement and believed the stockpiles were secured by the syrian military. now, panetta says the sites are being monitored by the united states and other countries. he says they're keeping a close eye on the situation. earlier today barbara star questioned the defense secretary about the development, and she's going to be joining in just a few moments. >> there's a group in
-- no one thinks that israel is about to drop a bomb on tehran. the difference is this is a government with a record of supporting terror. no one talking about this very much but if they had a nuclear weapon they would be very dangerous. even if they never use it. even if you believe that too bad things will happen if they get a bomb. that brings me to the second point that iran has the extensive contacts with terrorist groups. it put in the same fertilizer bomb that timmy mcvey used in oklahoma city. just that little bit. the prospect of spreading in a way dirty nuclear bombs with smaller payloads that would reek havoc and do unfold damage goes up every time some new country gets this capacity and you don't have any control over and you don't know whether they do over what happens to the fiscal material. >> if israel was to launch a strike because they believe that iran is right on the cusp of developing a nuclear weapon. if they do that what should america's response be? >> i shouldn't answer that question because of my wife's position. that's the president and security team desire o
will listen. this is in a town in northern -- this is after government war planes dropped several bombs on the people there. >>> a suicide bombing in eastern afghanistan leaves 14 people dead, three nato service members among the victims. we do not know their nationalities yet. the taliban is claiming responsibility for this blast. the afghan interior ministry says the attacker drove a motorcycle packed with explosives into a group of soldiers and afghan police on patrol. >> this was a scene outside the building for the punk rock band pussy riot. protesters scuffled with police. some got hauled away. while that was going on outside. inside the hearing was being postponed until october 10th. one of the members says she wants to fire her lawyers because she disagrees how they're actually handle this case. you probably remember these three women in the group were sentenced to two years in prison for performing a song critical of president vladimir putin in a cathedral. the women are all appealing their sentences. >>> at least 28,000 people killed so far in the civil war in syria. now the s
borrow directly from the government. now obama proposes to slow tuition growth by increasing state grants. yet he would need congress to help fund that. >> i'm not going to go out and promise all sorts of free stuff i know you're going to end up paying for. what i want to do is give you a great job so you'll be able to pay it back yourself. >> reporter: mitt romney's plan to help students, remove burdensome regulations and get the government out of the student loan business. romney says the flood of federal dollars just drives up tuition. molly broad of the american council on education says the recession's heavy toll on state budgets is also a factor. >> when the state reduces its support, the only other place to turn for most colleges in the public sector is to increase tuition. >> reporter: either way, students like jackie feel left out in the cold. >> a lot of people who don't have students in college or don't have kids my age just think, you're either wealthy enough to go to college or you get financial aid from the government. and it is aththat simple, but is not that simple. >> rep
are dependent on government very much -- >> reporter: but for romney when it rains it pours. his two-day under steady showers has a feel of a race against time. a new poll quinnipiac finds romney trailing the president by ten points in ohio, nine points in florida and 12 in pennsylvania. an abc "the washington post" poll may explain why. 54% said they had an unfavorable view of romney's comments on voters who don't pay taxes. romney told cnn he's not worried about the numbers. >> we're taking our message to the people of ohio and across the country. and polls go up and down. but frankly you're going to see the support that i need to become president on election day. >> reporter: but he's facing some strong economic headwinds in ohio where the governor, john casic, touted his state's recovery at a romney event. >> i hope you all know ohio's coming back from 48th in job creation to number four. number one in the midwest. >> reporter: joined by gulf legend and ohio native jack nicholas, romney said the president shouldn't get a mulligan or do-over. >> now there's over $16 trillion in debt. if he

government forces. well, the fight for control of this key city has been going on since july. videos posted online are said to show innocent civilians gunned down in the streets. cnn as no way to verify the awe then tis tty of the images. is there way to end the killi s killings? >> who would participate in the plan b, as you put it, the safe haich, the safe areas? >> i believe a lot of countries will participate. and european countries will participate. what we need, we need united states of america, i know, to be more -- that there is an election now. we are in election period. i hope that after the election, the american government looks at this matter in different way. i always meant no military intervention. but we need to take some measures and we need this measures with the united states, the european countries, the arab countries, the muslim countries. >> it is the syrian people suffering the most in the civil especially the children. the group save the children, is letting the kids tell the stories in their own words. there we have seen the reporting. the horrors that the children
, you said. the government of syria has by all accounts killed about 20,000 people, about 250,000 syrians, men, women, and children have fled the country, and 1.2 million syrians have been displaced within the country. why will you not call on bashar al assad to resign and leave as president of syria. >> translator: do you think that if we do such a thing that the problem will be resolved? >> you say that you care about human life. you should take a moral stand. >> translator: yes, but do you think that if we make the request that you asked of, that the problem will be resolved? it's not so. the problem of syria is very complicated. and it requires a just and right solution, and i'm truly sorry and saddened not only in syria but anywhere in the world from any side where there are people losing their lives. the opposition members, the syrian army, they're all from syria. they're all the people of syria. why should they be killed? there can be two proposals and solutions for syria. one is warfare. but there's also a second way of thinking, a national understanding. and i do beli
and u.s. government personnel who were in libya at the time of the attack. they have gotten as far as tripoli but never gotten to benghazi. they made a request that the crime scene be secured as we know from arwa damon's reporting and other public reporting, the state department, we don't know whether or not the state department put that request to the libyans and whether it was denied or what happened to. what we know for sure is the crime scene was never secured and the senior law enforcement official i spoke to said if we get there now it is not clear it will be of any use to us. the third and critical and astoonishing point to me is one of the things we have to do is question the individuals, the libyans have in custody to get to the bottom of this and understand what they are learning. in fact, they made that request with from the state department. that was denied by libya. so the fbi has to pass questions from the state department to the libyan government. they put the questions and you wait, sort of like a child's game of telephone, for that information to come back before y
government officials have confirmed to the committee that prior to the september 11th attacks, the u.s. mission in libya made repeated requests for increased security in benghazi. the mission in libya, however, was denied these resources by officials in washington. the state department has responded to darrell issa's letter. here is spokeswoman victoria newland. we are now working through all of the documents, all of the information that is available to us in this department. we will see where we are on the 10th, but it is our intention to cooperate fully. >> all right. hillary clinton also responded to issa with a letter of her own. i have it here. she said she has established an accountability review board, which begins work this week to determine, and i want to quote her, i'll read here straight from the letter, wants to determine whether our security systems and procedures in benghazi were adequate. whether they were properly implemented. and any lessons that may be relevant to our work around the world. darrell issa joins me now. good to see you, sir, and appreciate your taking
two social pioneers, michael and his friend alan casey, brought corporations and government together with volunteers to form this entity, and it was the model as the president said for americorps. and i -- i actually happened to be there at the first time he visited city year. he was there investigating the life-changing successes which were being reported in the lives of these young people that come together for a year of service. and as they were linked with corporate teams that worked with them. now i saw the power of these partnerships in 2002 when i was asked to be the head of the winter olympic games in salt lake city. i saw what happened when elements of a community were willing to join together in extraordinary unity. we were able to overcome challenges that many thought would be impossible for an organization like ours to overcome. the clinton global initiative has also dem straighted the effe -- demonstrated social enterprise. endeavor to comfort and assuage the pains of the afflicted but also to change lives, change lives through freedom, through free enterprise, through e
